"When this team is humble, we are very very dangerous"

Giannis Antetokounmpo after Milwaukee Bucks' Game-5 win over Phoenix Suns | 2021 NBA Finals

The Milwaukee Bucks emerged victorious in the all-important Game 5 of the 2021 NBA Finals against the Phoenix Suns at the Footprint Center.

The Milwaukee Bucks turned around a 16-point first-quarter deficit to beat the Phoenix Suns 123-119 in the fifth game of the Finals series. The Bucks are now just one win away from winning their first NBA title in 50 years.

Jrue Holiday (27 points, 13 rebounds and three steals), Giannis Antetokounmpo (32 points and nine rebounds) and Khris Middleton (29 points and seven rebounds) all stepped up for the Milwaukee Bucks to help them take a 3-2 series lead.

In the aftermath of his team's Game-5 win, Antetokounmpo said that it's important for the Milwaukee Bucks to keep fighting, especially as they are just a game away from winning the championship now. He said:

“We kept our composure; we kept fighting. This is the NBA Finals, so you got to give everything you got. And that’s what the team did tonight... You got to enjoy the moment; the job is not done. We got to stay humble; we got to stay in the present. When this team is humble, we are very very dangerous.”

Antetokounmpo missed clutch free throws down the stretch but converted an alley-oop dunk with barely ten seconds left on the clock to give the Milwaukee Bucks a three-point lead, which pretty much sealed the game for the team.
